1. To make the vegetable macedoine salad: Cut all the vegetables (except the green peas and corn) into small dice. Slice the green beans into 1/4-inch lengths.

2. Heat a large pot of salted water. Add the vegetables in steps so as to get an even cook for each. Start with carrots (8 minutes), potatoes (7 minutes), green beans (6 minutes), turnips (5 minutes), green peas (3 minutes), and corn (2 minutes). When the vegetables are cooked and tender, drain and plunge them into a large bowl of iced water to stop the cooking process and to make sure they keep their color. Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator until ready to finalize the macedoine.

3. Shortly before serving, combine mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, pepper, and salt. Combine the chilled vegetables with enough of the mayonnaise mixture to coat the vegetables. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Transfer the vegetable macedoine salad to a large salad bowl and serve chilled. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the macedoine salad recipe

  • If you have a lot of time, you can cook each vegetable separately: this will allow you to control the doneness of the vegetables better and keep each flavor well-defined.
  • Vegetable macedoine can be bland, so adjust seasoning to your (and your guest’s) liking. A pinch of Cayenne pepper can do wonders!

How to keep the vegetable macedoine salad leftovers?
